San Patrizio a Colle Prenestino is a modern parish church at Via Caiazzo 74 in the suburb of Colle Prenestino, which is on the Via Prenestina east of the Circonvallazione Orientale.

The dedication is to St Patrick.


It was designed by Maicher Biagini and completed in 2007 to a straightforward modern design, part of a larger community centre.

The church itself is a simple and rather small rectangular edifice in brown brick. The entrance frontage is in white stone, with a horizontal floating canopy over the entrance bearing a dedicatory inscription and a very narrow and long horizontal slit window above that crossed by a shorter slit so as to produce a cross motif. There is a cylindrical side-chapel with a conical finial, and a white concrete campanile with the impressively large set of bells hanging exposed.


The interior has the lower walls mostly in brown brick, with the upper walls and ceiling in white. There is no sanctuary, nor any artworks of note. The windows are clear plate glass. This church has little of architectural or artistic interest to attract the visitor, but it has been a very welcome addition to the amenities of a small and rather isolated suburb which has waited decades for an adequate place of worship.
